How to Make a Hamburger Bento Lunch Box

  • The true hamburgers in this bento are the meatball sandwiches on toothpicks. Make the mini burgers by halving meatballs and sandwiching with cheese, carrot and lettuce discs.

    Antichoking warning: Remember to remove toothpicks and cut up blueberries, grapes, carrots and other food for children under 4. See our Antichoking guide for more information.

  • Blueberries make an antioxidant-packed side, but any of your kid's favorite berries or fruit will work.

  • The main hamburger is actually mashed potatoes with cheese "sesame seeds". Let your kid sprinkle them on himself.
  • Stack and spear edamame for a healthy side -- but you can include any veggie your kid eats.
  • Stud halved cherry tomatoes with corn and a pea to use up leftover mixed veggies.
